Stampin’ Up! CAS Merry Cafe Pumpkin Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Merry Cafe stamp set and the Pattern Pumpkin Thinlits Dies to create a clean and simple fall card to share with you today.  I borrowed a little inspiration from my stamping friend Linda Callahan, you can see her fantastic pumpkin card here.

My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #307.

I started by adhering a panel Painted Autumn DSP to the front of a Peekaboo Peach card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered a panel of Wood Textures DSP to a panel of Early Espresso card stock with SNAIL.  I adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stretched a piece of the Copper Trim out and I adhered it with a little bit of SNAIL to the card front.  Then I die cut the pumpkin, leaves and curls from Peekaboo Peach, Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist card stocks with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies.  I adhered the die cut pieces to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I inked just the “hello fall” sentiment form the Merry Cafe photopolymer stamp set in Peekaboo Peach ink and stamped it on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I cut the image out with one of the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies and then stamped the little leaf images from the Merry Cafe stamp set in Tangerine Tango and Early Espresso inks on the banner.  I adhered the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish the card front.

I stamped the leaf images from the Merry Cafe stamp set in Tangerine Tango, Peekaboo Peach and Early Espresso inks on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock inside the card.

You can see a list of supplies used to create this card, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this post.
